The slow moving cold front that brought rounds of showers to CT Saturday and Saturday night is moving offshore this morning.  With lingering low level moisture, areas of fog have developed (reducing visibility to a quarter of a mile in some spots).  As high pressure builds in to the region (briefly), we'll see an increasing about of sunshine of the 2nd half of the weekend.  It will also be warmer today as we're forecasting temperatures to top out near 80!  Not bad, given our average high is 75° for the Hartford Area.  At the same time, some drier air works into the state, so the humidity will decrease a bit as the day progresses.  


A disturbance will move through the region Monday that will bring another chance for showers (perhaps a rumble of thunder).  Highs will be in the 70s. 

Beyond Monday, a really nice stretch of dry, storm-free weather is shaping up!  Through midweek, morning lows will be cool, in the 40s and 50s; then afternoon highs, under ample sunshine, should only be in the lower 70s (a bit below average for mid-September). 

By the end of the week, temperatures should trend upward.  By Friday, we’re close to 80 again under a partly to mostly sunny sky. 


If our long-range models hold, next weekend as of now, appears to also feature dry weather and some late-summer warmth with highs above 80!


Humberto continues to bring large swells, rough surf, etc to the Atlantic coastline of the southeastern US.  This system is expected to stay offshore as it parallels the coast, before turning to the northeast, the east … and eventually moving out to sea, well south of Southern New England.

It looks like two trees fell on Rainbow Road in Windsor, one of them on a car. I haven’t heard of any injuries. The car looks to be totaled.
